The Ministry of Labour has significantly increased its efforts to monitor employer compliance with obligations under the Employment Standards Act and Occupational Health and Safety Act. A visit from a Ministry official can be in the form of an audit, inspection, and/or investigation. Sometimes an employer receives advance notice of these visits, but occasionally the only notice is a knock on the door. A Ministry audit or inspection can necessitate considerable preparation, and result in substantial liability if a violation is found. The most effective way to protect your organization or clients is to understand an employer’s rights and obligations – and most importantly, be prepared.
